I've been waiting for a letterboxd general for three stinkin' days to post my review but I haven't see one in that time
so fuck it, The Big Short is a big shit. And fuck you too.
good review. don't agree, but it was well written and i can see where you're coming from.
I watched Refn's Pusher Trilogy last night. A lot better than his American stuff outside of Bronson.
Damiel turning mortal was the end of the plot but not the story
and it definitely isn't meant to be taken as the coda of the film.
Use some critical thinking next time you evaluate a classic work, plebeian.
so do I, which is why I didn't write a synopsis, I detailed the format of the movie so that people know the structure of the film I'm about to tear apart
you should read my other reviews. I stray far from the "synopsis + opinion" format most people use
you can ignore my brief ones, those are mostly comments to accompany a rating that I feel deserve some kind of explanation
Seen a lot of good movies lately recommend me something essential "bad" movies
Lots of plebs in here.
Let me fix that.
Rage thread? Post irritating reviews or ones that make you downright angry.
Your profile is still easy to find for anyone who bothers to check the 1 star ratings for Joy and open every profile until they find yours.
Is El Topo a post-apocalypse movie?
Yeah I get that, I meant how do you actually watch them as in: do you torrent them? Is it risky to download 60 years olds movies?
Rent them? Buy them? They're either hard to find or really expensive. Usually both.
here to rate Malick's arthouse trash half star and praise Guardians.
I'm from Canadia. I'll probably download movies until I get sent a warning. Living in '98 is tiring, I'm still renting movies cuz Netflix selection is shit and movies I'm generally poor.
He had practically two CGI creatures to work with (and Groot/Vin Diesel was wearing motion capture suit, leg stilts and then got stuffed up with CGI) and he manages to make everything flow naturally in a scene.
and hell, one of the actors is show wrestler that I have never seen in any other film, Dave Batista (he is in Spectre now) and even he, is impressive in his role.
I mean unless everyone of them is naturally gifted as fuck which would mean I am wrong (I don't close that option out) Gunn did something amazing with them. That's basically what I rated there with the three stars.
I also fell in love with set design and design of objects/items around the world. So much interesting stuff to look at, but I wish the movie had more time with them. I wasn't annoyed by its length, it was well paced (and directed) and felt just long enough and maybe could've gone for bit longer..
i am forgiving it a lot, what can I say? I am naive person.
i really hope gotg2 will be longer.
seconding hulu plus. there are no commercials during movies so you don't need to pay for the advanced membership.
torrents are also usually fine for older films so long as they're actually getting seeded.
Your favorite reviewers?
Hulu for Criterion, Netflix for random shit (it's gotten a lot worse outside of TV shows over the past few years though), and Amazon Plus for shipping since their movie selection is literal dogpuke. I'll use shit like putlocker, tubeplus, viooz, or even youtube as long as they're 720p - if it's a good movie, there's no harm in watching it in better quality later. I'll only torrent hard-to-find shit, which with the above is almost nothing, or for better-quality stuff that hasn't gotten a BR transfer yet.
Very true, and they often are on those sites, but they're still watchable enough to see if they deserve a second viewing at an authentic quality through a torrent, which I don't like to risk unless there's no other option.
Anon did you start watching it
Maybe if I had a BTN account.
Guys I'm going to watch some real cinema tonight wish me luck I hope weeks of meme-flicks hasn't destroyed me
Rutracker has every season in 720p web-dl quality. Comes with shitty quality rus audio track and good quality english audio track
A collaboration happens to be one of the best movies I've ever seen.
If I remember correctly at some point in Tarkovsky's Time Within Time book, he mentions writing a letter to Bergman and asking if he'd be interested in doing a collab with him and possibly Kurosawa and others.
The conceit is that Lars provides the rules and directs the bookends while Leth directs the actual "obstructions," but I don't know how much collaboration bleeds through. If you're actually looking for 'co-directing' films, Lord & Miller, the Coens, and the Russos are the only ones that currently come to mind. I think the DGA discourages or outright prohibits dual directing credit on films.
>Apocalypse Now: 7/10
>Reservoir Dogs: 6/10
You're can't be memeing people yet. Watch things in languages other than english. You'll probably like Oldboy, start there with Park Chan-wook and Bong Joon-ho. Try Dario Argento: Suspiria or Phenomena.
Watch stuff from the old days in b&w: 12 Angry Men, Maltese Falcon, Frankenstein.
Quentopher Nolantino isn't the pinnacle of film making. Everybody goes through that phase.
I followed the papa and he didn't follow back. Is this normal?
Das Boot if you've got time.
Stalker if you want something comfy but weird to wind down with. Black Moon if you just want weird.
Chungking or Labyrinth if you're just looking for some fun.
I didn't enjoy Oldboy (no I didn't watch the dub). I saw 12 Angry Men and I did enjoy it but it wasn't 5/5 imo. The only Nolan film I really enjoyed was Interstellar.
Pic related is my first page of top ratings in case you can deduce any recommendations for me. (inb4 edge lord)
se7en was easily my least favourite Fincher film (I haven't seen panic room, benjamin button, or Alien 3)
I don't really rate movies based on "the artistic genius" or whatever so don't get too upset. I more rate them based on the enjoyment I got out of watching them. I couldn't care less about the continuous shot memes of Birdman.
Thanks, will add to my watchlist.
start by watching all of these then i'll take your opinion into consideration
>Because Interstellar is better.
visually surely, but where kubrick ended his movie logically and symbolically with a lot of foreward shading done throughout the whole movie, nolan ends his with "love conquers all and time paradox lmao"
Really my top recommendation is to watch things from different countries and go deeper than the 80s.
Dario Argento from Italy
Sion Sono, Satoshi Kon, Hayao Miyazaki, Takashi Miike from Japan
You'll probably really like these directors.
Bong Joon-ho and Park Chan-wook from Korea
If you liked Zodiac, try Memories of Murder.
Xavier Dolan from French Canada
And then try to watch the classics like Kurosawa, Bergman, Godart etc...
New season in a month senpai.
he has been shilling RYM for months. he's just some mouthbreather from the forum there who put a lot of money into the campaign and is trying to justify his investment. just ignore him.
lel, nobody who actually has used rym needs to 'justify' shit, that site actually has ton of features, working social side, and developers that can code and do code.
mean while letterkek runs like dog shit in syrup sea with retarded as fuck codemonkey(s)? trying to code their first site
oh please because clicking around like you have parkinsons is good
>it's a RYM shill looses his mind at people with better taste episode
you're making apocalypse now look bad
pro tip: guy ritchie is a genuine 100% piece of garbage. all of his movies are bad
tarantino isn't as bad as people say but he is by definition entry level since his films are just copies/mishmashes of better films
fight club is one of Finchers worst films even though it's a great dark comedy. Shouldn't anywhere near someones top 10 though unless all they value is edginess and dark humor, aka reddit fedora the person
the patrician dark humor film would be 4 lions, in bruges, harold and maude, big lebowski, etc.
I was tricked into watching Bone Tomahawk.
that's not the problem. The problem is what causes you to enjoy a film. If quality filmmaking and artistic integrity don't factor into what makes a film enjoyable for you and you instead choose to decide it on other factors such as aesthetics, shitty humor, self insert characters, and literally explosions then your opinions aren't worth a lot to people who care about opinions. and if all you have to back it up is "yeah well I liked it so there's no way to prove me wrong" then you're probably just a tasteless idiot
i mean some people are tasteless and some people are idiots. thats just the way the world works.
Going to go see Macbeth tomorrow in Vancouver with the boy friend.
Currently trying to get my watch list down below 100 this year.
A Deadly Adoption
Dead Snow 2
God, that third season was tough to get through, took me 10 months.
You're right famalam.
I loved The 39 Steps but is Saboteur really THAT bad?
Everything after Snatch is pretty mediocre from Guy Ritchie, but I loved both Snatch and Lock Stock.
I think I enjoyed Zodiac more than Fight Club. I haven't updated my favorite movies in a long time.
In Bruges was alright, but it felt like I was watching a TV show. The acting was pretty obnoxious and there was something off about the cinematography.
I just find it stupid when film nerds gush over a film because of some gimmick or how amazing the cinematography is. Everything should come together to form an experience for the viewer, and people should rate movies based on what they got out of the movie, not what camera techniques and setting the director chose to use.
Her: movie was visually beautiful and had an amazing aesthetic but the story was awkward/cheesy/reddit and I wasn't entertained/moved by it so I couldn't give it more than 3.5/5. I hear people on letterboxd ejaculating about this movie, giving it 5 stars but they rarely touch on the story itself.
What do you think about Suspicion?
...I made hundreds of these kek
>The ending really hurt the film
Yeah and I read that sadly Hitchcock was forced to end his films with a happy ending. Pic related's pissed me off.
That's the thing though. The cinematography moved people and combined with the sound and art design it helped people feel more moved by the story. People don't think the way you're imagining they do.
I constantly read letterboxd reviews where people write a paragraph about how much of a genius x director is with his beautiful camera angles but they don't say a word regarding any other aspect of the movie. It sounds to me like they want people to think they understand the film on a deeper level than everyone else or have some "industry knowledge" that enables them to set apart one film from another.
Maybe I'm generalizing too much but that's the vibe i get from all of the "popular reviews" on lots of films.
